Matt Barber got on a Tea Party Unity conference call last week and claimed that America is on the verge of having hate speech laws that will throw Christians in prison. In fact, Obama used his criticism of Donald Sterling as a trial run in his fiendish plot to throw the Christian into FEMA camps.
We’re probably five, six years at the most, I think, behind Canada in terms of enacting such hate-speech kind of laws and crackdown. It’s already happening informally, as we saw, again, with Mozilla, with Eich, as we’re seeing with Donald Sterling.
And it’s easy to do with Donald Sterling. You know, they can test the waters because, I think, universally people agree that what he said his horrible and he’s just kind of a not a very appealing guy and his words were reprehensible. So, they’ve already banned him for life from the NBA, they’ve already banned him from having anything to do with the team that he owns, which may or may not be appropriate, but people are clamoring and saying, ‘That’s not enough!’ And I don’t know what else they want to, do they want him tarred and feathered, do they want him drawn and quartered? They certainly want to force, and confiscate his property, and that’s what we’re talking about, and that’s what happened with Brendan Eich, they confiscated, essentially, his livelihood, his means of carrying out a living and feeding his family.
Gotta love that use of the pronoun “they” to refer to entirely different antecedents. The first “they” would be the government, which is the only entity that can pass hate speech laws. Then suddenly in the second paragraph “they” means private businesses making hiring decisions. Hey Matt, whatever happened to that free market you love so much? And to those “right to work” laws you support that allow companies to fire anyone they want for any reason? When a group boycotts a company and that company takes action in response to the boycott, isn’t that the free market at work? It always seems to be when you call for boycotts, which you do all the time. But when a boycott supports something you don’t like and a company does something you disagree with, it’s suddenly — and magically — “economic terrorism” and a precursor to the mass arrest of Christians. You might want to get your logic meter fixed, it appears to be broken.
President Obama did not mention that, hey, a law was violated in the taping of this, yet they are using that illegally gained fruit of the poisonous tree in order to go after this guy, to excommunicate him from the NBA, and now to try and confiscate his property. This is scary stuff, but it’s indicative of the lawlessness that we’re living under under this Obama administration.
He knows he can get away with the GOP, regrettably, at this point – the go along, get along Republican Party establishment who doesn’t want to be called racist – he can get away with murder. So the only thing that would stop it would be their own cost-benefit analysis determining that the American public would not be ready for such an act.
This is why I believe they’re testing the waters, with Mozilla, with Brendan Eich, President Obama weighed in on that and exacerbated and fanned the flames, with Donald Sterling, President Obama weighed in on that, fanned the flames.
I think they’re testing the waters to see what they can get away with. And if they feel like the political climate is ripe for this kind of Orwellian executive order, I would not be surprised to see him essentially through executive fiat reinstate the Fairness Doctrine over the talk waves and go after hate speech even in the context of private conversations, that as Rick points out, are apparently, have all been recorded and are on record, so they can come after any of us for things that we have said or things that we would say.
Hey Matt…have you ever noticed that none of your dystopic fantasies ever comes true? No one is seizing everyone’s guns, there are still no FEMA camps, not a single pastor has been arrested under the hate crimes law for preaching against homosexuality. Under the Biblical standard for false prophets, you would have been stoned to death by now in ancient Israel.
